  2. 2. There is a Iot more to efficient Googling than you might think: in a recent study on student research skills, 3 out of 4 students couIdn’t perform a ‘well-executed search’ on Google. When the success of your term paper hangs ¡n the balance, using Google effectively is crucial, but most students surprisingly just don't know how. Here are some crucial tips for refining your Googling, as well as some other great places to hunt down that last study you need for your thesis. i? ‘
  3. 3. NYTimes articles about test scores in college, but not the SATs, written between 2008 and 2010. {l D! site: Only searches the pages ofthat site. Excludes this term from the search. Searches for the exact phrase, not each of the words separately. s¡te: nytimes. com «college “test scores” -SATs 2008..2010 Shows all results from within the designated timerange. ¡V Will also search related words, such as ‘higher education’ and ‘university’.
  4. 4. A report on the different air speed velocities of common swallows. Don't ask Google questions. Think about how an answer would be phrased, and search for that (ie, never search for ‘What is the air speed velocity. ..’). intitle: 0nly shows results with that word in the title (in this case, Velocity’). filetype: Searches only results of the file type you designate. Can use for pdf, doc, jpg, etc. filetypezpdf air speed intitlezvelocity of *swallow i! - Replaces itself with common terms in your search (in this case, Red Rumped swal- low and Lesser Stríped swallow will both be searched, along with many others).
  5. 5. ‘n’: M ¡l ’- ' , Ü’; s. ’ L‘: bïL'Á-. .b¡_ For most projects you work on in college, simple Googling won't do the trick on lts own. Enter Google Scholar, which exclusively Searches academic and soholarly work — that is, the kind of work you'll need to be cíting in your papers. Papers about photosynthesis by Dr. Ronald L. Green and Dr. Thomas P. Buttz. l‘ I! This will search tor papers by Green rather than papers involving the word ‘green. ” For more specific results, you can out the authors full name or initials in quotes. authorzgreen photosynthesis “tp buttz” el Just like a normal Google search, this is where the topic you're looking for goes.

'As 70% ot students use Macs. we tormatted these tips tor Mac users, but many of them will work tor PCs if you press ‘CTRL’ instead ot ‘Command’. The most important keyboard shortcut for research, ever.

'As 70% ot students use Macs. we tormatted these tips tor Mac users, out many of them will work tor PCs if you press ‘CTRL’ instead ot ‘Command’. Doing rapid Google searches in a number of tabs can be fatiguing. instead of mousing up to the address bar every time, just hit Command + L and it's already selected. 3€ + Sometimes, for whatever reason, you might need to capture the state of your screen, or an image from a document.

  10. 10. Further Hesearc ps Use Your Lihrarws Website Google should never be your only research option. Most colleges’ library web pages have links to wealths of resources at your disposal. This is where you can find access to scholarly databases such as JSTDR, which publish content that you can't access for free elsewhere. Don't Cite Wikipedia Let’s face it: we all use Wikipedia when conducting research. It’s a great first resource to familiarize one’s self with a topic, but using Wiki for a research paper is a deadly academic sin. But if you find a good wiki, check out the reference links at the bottom for more credible sources. Mine Bibliographies This tip is applicable for both digital and traditional research. If you find a great book, study, or article, chances are it cites some other great sources. Always thoroughly explore the bibliographies of your research materials for leads, and look up everything you find that seems promising.
